Martin Scorsese Defends Killers of the Flower Moon’s Lengthy Runtime

“Not every film is for every person.”



With the release of Killers of the Flower Moon, Martin Scorsese has yet again proven why he is considered one of the greatest living directors of all time.

The film – starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone – has already been nominated for 10 Oscars at the upcoming 96th Academy Awards, with Scorsese, De Niro, and Gladstone being nominated for one each.

Since the release of Killers of the Flower Moon, the movie has been critically praised for different things, such as Scorsese’s direction, production values, cinematography, musical score, and cast performances. However, there is one thing that has received criticism.

As you have already guessed, the criticism concerns the movie’s lengthy runtime, which is 3 hours and 26 minutes. But if you’re familiar with Scorsese’s works, the runtime is no shocker, as the director has other films with a 3-hour runtime or even more lengthy.

For instance, the 2013 movie The Wolf of Wall Street, starring DiCaprio, had a runtime of 3 hours. Likewise, the 2016 movie Silence and the 2019 film The Irishman had a runtime of 2 hours 41 minutes and 3 hours 29 minutes, respectively.

That said, Scorsese isn’t fazed by the criticisms his newest movie is receiving for its lengthy runtime. The director, alongside DiCaprio and Gladstone, was recently featured in Variety, where the trip talked about different topics, including DiCaprio’s Oscar snub.

As the conversation, published on January 26, 2024, went on, the interviewer asked Scorsese how he felt about the criticism Killers of the Flower Moon is getting regarding its 3-hour and 26-minute runtime, with some saying the film is too long.

Scorsese replied that he didn’t know how to respond to the critics except that many people seemed to go with it. He even mentioned that many people told him they wanted to see it again and that he felt right about the movie’s length.

His statement read, “I really don’t know how to respond to it except for the fact that many people seem to go with it. Some people say, ‘I want to see it again.'” Scorsese then mentioned that not every film is for every person and not every novel is for every reader.

“Not every film is for every person. Not every novel is for every reader, not every painting, etc. I don’t know if it’s something that will be universally accepted. This one felt right [at this length], and I felt that while I was watching it. I felt inside of it. And I made it.,” he added.

“There is a big difference. When I watched it again, particularly when I screened the mix, you know, you’re working on the mix, you’re working on the sound of a car, you’re working on the dialogue, you’re working on… you’re like this,” he said.

While saying that, Scorsese showed how his eyes were glued to the screen during post-production. “And you gotta look at the whole thing. And I said, ‘Wow. It’s a long one, too. I don’t know, you know; instead, I watched the movie. I watched the movie,” he concluded.

DiCaprio and Gladstone didn’t share their respective thoughts on this question, and the conversation gradually moved to other topics, with the interviewer asking DiCaprio about playing a villain and what Gladstone taught him that he would take into future performances.

Speaking a little more about the movie, its development started in March 2016 after Imperative Entertainment won the adaptation rights to the book. Scorsese and DiCaprio joined the film in 2017, and the production was expected to start in early 2018.

However, there were many pushbacks and delays, including some due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Apple TV+ and Paramount Pictures later joined in, with the former financing the movie and the latter distributing it.

As the production continued, other stars – including Gladstone, De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Brendan Fraser, John Lithgow, Cara Jade Myers, Janae Collins, and more – were cast in the movie.

Finally, on May 20, 2023, Killers of the Flower Moon premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival. Later, on October 20, 2023, the film was theatrically released in the United States for a limited time only and received critical acclaim.

As of this writing, it has been reported that the movie has grossed more than $156 million worldwide — the total budget was $200 million. On January 12, 2024, Killers of the Flower Moon was made available to stream globally on AppleTV+.

After watching all the cute pictures of Sean and Catherine Lowe, one Instagram user commented, “All these birthday/anniversary celebration posts made me watch your season. Again! You both don’t look old enough to be married 10 years. Was this a surprise bday/anniv gift?”

Catherine decided to reply to the fan and answer the last question about whether the vacation was Catherine’s birthday gift — she turned 38 on April 29, 2024 — or if it was their wedding anniversary gift.

She revealed that it was their anniversary gift from her husband. She also stated that Sean had surprised her with this trip on their actual wedding anniversary and had managed everything, including asking his parents to watch their children.

Like Sean managed the whole vacation in Mexico, Catherine did the same, including asking their family member to take care of their three children. Catherine later posted the whole experience, where she mentioned that Sean had been wanting to see Oppenheimer.

As of this writing, it has been reported her brother, Jairyn, was shot. As per Cincinnati Enquirer, who got the details from Springfield Township police, Jairyn was shot on Thursday afternoon in the 2000 block of Springdale Road.

At approximately 1:35 p.m., police officials were informed of a person shot inside their vehicle. When officials arrived at the location, they found Jairyn, a 30-year-old Lincoln Heights native, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Jairyn was immediately taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was ultimately pronounced dead. It has been reported that the Springfield Township Police Department Criminal Investigations Section is currently investigating the incident.

As of this writing, no information regarding a suspect has been released. For now, this incident has been labeled a homicide, and the authorities are reportedly working to find the culprit.

Anyone with any information has been asked to call the Springfield Township Police Department at 513-729-1300 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.

Returning to Quen, her well-wishers have expressed their condolences in her comment section and Reddit threads. For instance, one wrote, “Rest in peace!! Sending so much love and prayers to her and the rest of her family!!” Another wrote, “Hope he gets justice.”

Likewise, in a Reddit thread, one Redditor commented, “Wtf. I hope her and her family are able to heal from this and get justice. I didn’t even know she had any siblings. Her mental health wasn’t all too great, so I’m really wishing her the best through all this.”

As the Reddit user pointed out, Quen hadn’t talked about her now-late brother, Jairyn Blackwell. Besides, not many even knew she had a brother. So, it’s safe to say that the YouTuber wanted to maintain privacy around her family life.

As Quen and her family deal with the unfortunate passing of their family member, we must also respect their privacy and let them have a moment of peace. Glamour Buff family wishes only the best for the Blackwell family.
